WoW Moviewatch: Explorer Timelapse

One of the interesting details about WoW landscapes is that they don't hold still. It might sound like an obvious thing to experienced gamers, but take the time look at how the world around you is moving, changing, and living. These are little details that's easy to miss, because it's not like you see the world spinning by on a timelapse video.

Explore Timelapse by Mdaabil changes that. This video captures 88 zones in the space of seven minutes, stringing over 100,000 screenshots together into a coherent timelapse video. The creator kept the work in over 950 folders on his system while creating the video, finally choosing a mere 164 scenes for the final video.

Our hat's off to Mdaabil for a fun, inspiring video.
